†In pictures:†French voters' views
Bernard, 60, furniture maker

Voted for Nicolas Sarkozy

I voted for a more forceful and dynamic candidate.

I voted for more liberalisation of the economy - anyway more liberal than it is today.

I donít believe those who say he is a divider.

France is a country which is difficult to rule - we need someone strong and firm to rule.
